Good Indian Food on the UWS?

I just moved to the UWS (96th/West End) and I loooove Indian food. I was hoping someone on this board might be able to recommend a couple of good - and reasonably-priced - places in the neighborhood?

    With few exceptions, and as on sixth street, most Indian restaurants on the UWS seem to share a single kitchen. Not many differentiate themselves in any notable way and, in my opinion, should be chosen based on neighborhood convenience.

      Indus Valley on Bway and 100th street is fantastic. I developed a taste for top-notch Indian when living in London for a year. I've lived on UWS for 8 years and eat at Indus Valley a couple times a month.

        co-sign on Indus Valley, easily the best Indian I've had here on the UWS.. and I ran into jazz legend Reggie Workman there once, which is a plus!

        Earthen Oven, 72nd St & Columbus which offers special chef from the South.

          It might be a bit too far for you, but I love Mughlai on 75th and Columbus. Order the Kerala Pepper Chicken!
